Jülich model: Directors of institutes at Forschungszentrum Jülich are appointed professor in a joint procedure with one of the partner universities and are simultaneously seconded by the university to Forschungszentrum Jülich in order to fulfil their duties as head of institute at Jülich. Reverse Jülich model: Professors whose primary employment is at their university also work as directors of an institute at Jülich (secondary employment). Prof. Knut Urban was the first to re- ceive the recently created JARA senior professorship. It is awarded by RWTH Aachen University to outstanding scien- tists who have retired and allows them to continue their research both at RWTH Aachen University and at Forschungs- zentrum Jülich. It also aims to promote the exchange of knowledge and cooper- ation between young and experienced scientists. The honour was conferred on the retired director of the Ernst Rus- ka-Centre for Microscopy and Spectros- copy with Electrons at the RWTHtrans- parent event in January 2012. The certificate of appointment was present- ed to him by the rector of RWTH Aachen University, Prof. Dr. Ernst Schmachten- berg, and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Forschungszentrum Jülich, Prof. Dr. Achim Bachem. The internationally respected neuro- scientist and medical researcher Prof. Karl Zilles was appointed JARA senior professor at RWTH Aachen University in January 2013. Karl Zilles was director at Forschungszentrum Jülich’s Institute of Medicine from 1998 to 2002 before be- coming director at the Institute of Neu- roscience and Medicine, a post he held until the end of 2012. During this time, he also headed the C. & O. Vogt Insti- tute of Brain Research at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. Since August 2007, Karl Zilles has also expanded his collaboration with University Hospital Aachen’s Department of Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics within the framework of the newly established brain research alliance, JARA-BRAIN, which he will now continue under the JARA senior professorship.
